Saw SWMRS twice yesterday. Incredible live right now. Just so much passion.

Just got my tickets through to see In Flames in Bristol. I just googled the support bands and one is Norma Jean, who I don't like and the other is Howard Jones' new band which seems like a left field choice.

I haven't even heard of the venue before. How does it compare to the O2 Academy, which is up there in my favourite venues, mostly because of the bands I have seen there and just the size and acoustics.

Addendum: I just found out that the Bierkeller closed down and I know the Fleece may be closing soon as well. Which is a right cunt, because they are some good venues.

SWX is literally a 2 minute from where the Bierkeller was. Its a nighclub thats recently started doing live bands, its smaller than the o2 but i prefer it, great sound too. I do like the o2, but its a headache when its sold out.

If you go to SWX you need to get as central in the crowd as possible, the sound is pretty shite on the edges. Quality of SWX depends on the band really, it's a club soundsystem and so works better for stuff that fits that sort of acoustic profile - stuff with more emphasis on lyrics or dynamicism is varied. Sylvan Esso, Superogranism (pop) and HMLTD (synth punk) were great there, Tank and the Bangas (hip hop) and Khruangbin (noodly funk) less so.

SWX has way better sound than the O2 but I'm of the opinion O2 sound is shite (for the bands I've seen there) 

And I'm more and more of the opinion Trinity is best venue in Bristol, seen several bands now play a gig there and a gig somewhere else and the Trinity gigs are always noticeably better. Incredible soundsystem that's super clear, easy venue to get to where you want in the crowd and the venue actually does stuff to engage in the community.

Been on a bit of a gig binge recently; seen Brother Ali, Mick Jenkins and Lee Perry all in the last 5 days. Internet next week.
